ABSTRACT
Chapter 3 of the book "The African Novel & the Modernist Tradition" is presented. The chapter shows that novelist Kofi Awoonor employs similar devices to those of James Joyce in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Virginia Woolf in The Waves. This Earth My Brother by Awoonor, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and the Waves are novels about the self. The images and symbols used by three novelists are very revealing. All the symbols are deployed in an identical manner.
